Some time back 20/20 reported that a mountain in West Virginia had been afire from inside for twenty-five years. This fire is a coal fire. The mountain is slowly crumbling away and may eventually fall on a village below.

The mountain is also emitting dangerous fumes that are slowly killing the people. The villagers will not leave their roots.

One man said “This is a Hell on earth.” Another said, “Even if the mountain falls, I would rather die than leave.” As bad as this is, it does not compare to the everlasting Hell that awaits those who leave this world without Christ.
